    I've seen them here but haven't tried one.
    I don't put too much stock in user reviews cause they're subjective to the person using the unit. Sometime I might use a user review to see if an item has a low breakdown rate, but soundwise, find a place that has one and try it before you spend the money.
    That's a lot of money for a stompbox. For a little more you could find a used marshall 800 head and really have some fun.

    I've never used one, but if your in the market for a great O/D pedal, check this out http://www.voodoolab.com/sparkle.html these things are like a Tube screamer on acid, you can get eveything from a SRV/hendrixy tone all the way to ball crushing!

    Of course if you have cash, nothing can touch this http://www.mesaboogie.com/Product_In...in/v-twin.html
    but it'll cost ya!

    It`s my favorite distortion pedal hands down. I use it with a Marshall JTM45 at low volumes in the house and I love the tone. I did however change out the 12AX7 tube that came in it for an old RCA 12AX7 gray long plate and that took any buzziness in tone it migh have had. It works best thru a clean amp.

    Sometimes I wish I'd tried the Tonebone Classic first, as I suspect it's more "VH".

    Sometimes the Hot British can be a tad too snarly for my tastes. It definitely does what they claim it can do.

    And I don't know about the prices in Canada (where Tribb lives), but a used JCM 800 head in the states goes costs between $800-$1000, whereas the Tonebone is about $250.
